    Police ask help in finding missing Mountlake Terrace woman
    Mountlake Terrace - Mountlake Terrace police are asking for the public's help in locating a missing woman.
    Cheryl DeBoer, 54, was supposed to meet a friend at the Mountlake Terrace Park and Ride lot and carpool to work Monday morning. She texted her friend around 7 a.m. saying that she would catch a bus instead; she has not been seen or heard from since. Her vehicle was located parked in the 23400 block of 58th Avenue SW in Mountlake Terrace.

    Body found in Mountlake Terrace identified as missing woman
    http://www.king5.com/story/news/loca...ious/80417266/
    The Snohomish County Medical Examiner on Tuesday announced that they have identified a body found in Mountlake Terrace as 53-year-old Cheryl DeBoer. The cause and manner of death are pending further investigation, the ME's office said. Mountlake Terrace Police had said there is no reason to believe the public is in danger following the discovery of the body.

    The family remains cooperative with the investigation, he said, adding DeBoer’s husband took a polygraph test late last week and police have eliminated him as a person of interest.

    Before I continue to search through previous threads....do any of you who started following this case from the start recall reading about a woman approached by a group of men? Maybe someone was referring to another case but I thought something about this happening at the park was posted. I am going to look again but if no one else remembers - I will at least know I'm off base here.

    Maybe a security guard from work did this deed and hopped back on the bus?
    Familiarity with a friendly victim?

    I'm guessing this incident in Seattle could not be related. As a city, Seattle probably has a host of incidents that we could apply here but this one was recent and caught my eye because of the boldness...

    I think you might be referring to this case. Edmonds Community College is just to the west of MLT.

    A third thread and tomorrow will mark two weeks since Cheryl disappeared. Not good.

    As we enter this thread, I would like to ask all that have joined the sleuthing in the last few days to take the time to go back and try to read the other two threads. A lot of info that has been posted in the last few days was also posted and discussed last week and some of it discounted, some of it expanded. I really think it helps if we are all on the same page with facts, locations, available maps etc. It does seem that once a case reaches the 2-week mark without any fresh leads that a lot of circular and repetitive posting happens which is frustrating to those that took the time to answer questions, investigate, collect info and compose posts only to have the same questions asked and eventually answered again only days later. So, to save your time and the time of others I would like to kindly ask that people become familiar with the case

    reason it took me so long to post was because i was reading it all. however, i am not sure i was able to take everything in. i hope i dont post whats already been said. sometimes i respond to people who have posted something thats been discounted or who arent aware.....im not trying to show that i didnt already know, just trying to help them be made aware so someone else doesnt have to. if i post something outside of that thats been discounted, please let me know.

    That is the one - thank you! Funny that it was 4 because another incident involving 4 men also occurred - not sure how far this was but they have not been caught as far as I could tell.

    It was mentioned upthread by a former colleague that "it was NOT unusual" for CD to park streetside and walk through the park. Although this is hearsay, it also gels with many comments from MLT commuters that the "walking through the park" option was one often used by east side commuters to avoid traffic and because all day parking on the side of the street is free.
    The path is paved (or at least not just exposed earth as it's marked as a trail on Google) and just 0.2 of a mile (5 mins on foot)

    Upthread these pre-existing trailers where discussed. You can seem them historically on various maps and streetview using Google Earth or Bing maps. One is a towable camper, one is a towable motorcycle trailer. There all along, not crimescene wagons, not suspicious.

    If I recall correctly CD was driving the car that her husband typically drove. I wonder if a perp was waiting in the car expecting that the husband would be driving it. They might not have seen that the husband had already left. I'm not sure how the work badge would factor in to the equation which is a weakness in this theory. Stranger things have happened though.

    The path along the southern side is paved and just 0.2 of a mile (5 mins on foot)

    thank you so much! the only qualm i have is that a news video (that i linked to earlier) said CD had said she felt the area unsafe...so why would she walk that path, if so?

    I suppose it depends on the office environment, but some organizations and technology teams use tools like Slack for team communication. It's far more efficient than email. Cell phone enables instant work related communication throughout the day regardless of physical location. That aside, the fact that Cheryl was going to return home to pick up her badge and meet with the carpool friends in 10 minutes - it doesn't make sense to me that she would power down her phone. It does make sense that she had the phone in her hand, someone took it away from her and powered down her phone.

    Please, please know that I was not pointing any fingers at anyone with my last post. I have just been noticing this kind of thing happens on a lot of threads that drag out with no new info from police/media. It just means the thread gets longer and longer with no new info which in turn becomes discouraging for the next lot of newcomers to read

    Closer view of trail entrance



    Trail about half way leading from the park and ride, there is a wooden bridge over a semi dry culvert area.



    Trail leading to the stairs to the park and ride (just around the chain link fence to the right).
